We got to see a preview of Windows 8 recently at a local Atlanta web design industry event and thought some of the same things as this article…
After watching the demo, we also made note that MS was soooo focused on a less is more, grid based style of the new Windows interface (they call it “Metro”). A design theology that Apple has had since pretty much Day 1 in everything from product design to marketing materials. Interesting, isn’t it?
I thought the current battle for our digital lifestyles was more or less between Apple and Google. But it looks like Microsoft is still in the fight.
In all fairness, you should go check out the preview of the new Windows 8 preview and see for yourself.
We’ll keep our minds open and see how it pans out over the next year.
